Ham, White Bean Risotto; shopping — 8 Comments

  1. I belong to a few Scots sites since my mother’s family goes back generations and she was born there. It’s my heritage and I’m proud of it. I’ve read a lot about Brexit, but it never occurred to me how it will affect the rest of the EU. I’m mostly interested in it from the Scottish independence pov.

    I used to knit a lot. I don’t very often anymore but should get back to it. My dad’s mother is the one who taught me to knit, crochet, tat, embroider, do crewel work…my mother’s mom taught me how to quilt and make lace.

    • My mother taught me to embroider but that is all she did. I taught myself to knit and crochet. I do it during our hour and a half of TV time. I’ve never been able to watch TV without doing something else lol I had an aunt who tatted but I never learned. A lost art I fear

  2. Katie, can you tell me the name of the shop in England that stocks malabrigo? Thank you.


  3. Thanks for the tip about Wool Warehouse, I buy from them and hadn’t thought about the Brexit effect. What do you knit/crochet? I make crochet blankets/throws.

    • I’ve crocheted a lot of blankets…. I started knitting because it takes longer and uses less yarn lol. At the moment I’m knitting a cardigan and am going to start crocheting a lace shawl,,,, Brexit – bah, humbug!
